Little Women

Channel: M-Net (DStv 101)
TX Time: 22h05
Genre: Period Drama

Little Women

Based on Louisa May Alcott's universally beloved novel, Little Women is a three-hour adaptation from the award-winning creator of Call the Midwife, Heidi Thomas.

Set against the backdrop of a country divided, the story follows the four March sisters: Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy on their journey from childhood to adulthood while their father (Dylan Baker) is away at war.

Under the guidance of their mother Marmee (Emily Watson), the girls navigate what it means to be a young woman: from gender roles to sibling rivalry, first love, loss and marriage.

Accompanied by the charming boy next door Laurie Laurence, their cantankerous wealthy Aunt March (Angela Lansbury) and benevolent neighbour Mr. Laurence (Michael Gambon), Little Women is a coming-of-age story that is as relevant today as it was on its original publication in 1868.

The Pioneer Woman is an open invitation into Ree Drummond's life — the award-winning blogger and cookbook author shares her special brand of home cooking, from throw-together suppers to elegant celebrations.

The series, set against the incredible story of life at home on the range, is the next best thing to actually sitting on a stool in Ree's kitchen.

In the Season 20 premiere, "One-Pot Wonders": Ree cuts down on the cleanup with four one-pot recipes.

The non-stick skillet is perfect for Breakfast Hash with fried eggs and a multi-pasta pot is all you need for Loaded Veggie Pasta.
